NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pioneer Media Holdings Inc. (NEO: JPEG, AQSE: PNER) (“Pioneer” or the “Company”), a web3 gaming and infrastructure company, today announces that it has closed the first tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the “Private Placement”) of up to C$1,000,000. The Company raised gross proceeds of C$580,000 through the issuance of 5,800,000 units (the “Units”) at C$0.10 per Unit.
Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of a transferable common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to acquire one common share of the Company for a period of 24 months following the Private Placement closing at an exercise price of C$0.25.
The Company intends to use the proceeds raised from the Private Placement to continue executing on its strategic growth strategy, ongoing technology development and for general working capital and corporate purposes. All securities issued under the Private Placement will be subject to a statutory four month hold period following the date of closing of the Private Placement.
The Company has paid finder’s fees of C$6,000 cash and 60,000 transferrable warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants”) in connection with the Private Placement. Each Finder’s Warrant will be exercisable into one common share of the Company at a price equal to C$0.10 per share for a period of 24 months from issuance.
Certain insiders of the Company’s operating subsidiary participated in the Private Placement purchasing an aggregate of 800,000 Units for an aggregate price of C$80,000, representing 13.8% of the Units issued.
The Company anticipates closing the second tranche of the private placement in early 2023.
Application has been made for the 5,800,000 Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on Aquis Stock Exchange (“Admission”). Admission is expected to occur at 8:00am on or around 21 November 2022.
Total Voting Rights
Following Admission, the Company’s issued share capital will comprise 83,812,582 common shares without par value, with each share carrying the right to one vote.
The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. The above figure of 83,812,582 may therefore be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or of a change to their interest in the Company under the FCA’s Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
